Hi all, we use a software vpn tunnel to access a clients server over the internet.

But when we log on to the VPN tunnell we lose our ability to access email and other web pages whilst connected.

Is there a someway in Windows XP and 98 to allow VPN connectivity and web activity at same time?

Thanks in advance, J

I'm pretty sure that you would need an external VPN Concentrator. IF the network that you are VPN'ing to filters web access, then you are out of luck.

I have had some fun with this myself. I am not a guru on this but this might be of help.

Is the computer you are connecting to on a lan inside a company that has a firewall? If so the firewall my be preventing your access to external sites.

I know I have this problem when I vpn to work I cannot send email through my POP3 client because the firewall is blocking something.

When I drop my vpn I sometimes have to close my browser and re open it to get my machine pointing back to the right places.

Don't know if this is of any help or not.
